Bob (or others)

Looking further in my database I found I also had:

Zurich Canton

I assume from the above that Canton Zurich is the correct form and Zurich
Canton is incorrect. Is this right?

Also is there a level of classification in Swiss names that would
correspond to "county" or would that normally be left blank?

Thanks

Walt
